A REVERIE 

I [ere we stand before the threshold. Far behind us lies the closed 
door of childhood. Now we have come to the end of another corridor in our 
lives. The future beckons. But wait! — let's turn and look back before we 
close this door and move on. Yes. Let's look back over the years since we 
first entered Roslindale High School. 

How quickly we became accustomed to the strange surroundings, 
new studies, new teachers, new friends! How understanding our teachers w ere 
as they tactfully set us on the right path! How many times in the next two 
years did we turn to them when obstacles seemed unsurmoun table? Many 
years may pass before we fully realize just how great is our debt to these 
friends: to our Head Master, Mr. Gately, and to every member of the faculty. 
Each one has been a great influence thus far in our lives. 

There have, of course, been other influences: — Ike's election, 
television and Dragnet, knee socks and white bucks, popular songs, Eddie 
Fisher and Johnny May, the favorite slang expressions ... we took them all 
to heart. The clubs we joined, the worries we had, the homelessons we just 
didn't have time to do, the bi-monthlies we crammed for . . . the report cards 
. . . the friendships we made, the hopes, the tears, the ambitions, the dreams 
we shared ... all have been signposts along the way. 

How many times, as the years pass, shall we recall all our young 
dreams, some of w hich will have been fulfilled, others w hich will have long 
since died? How many times while thumbing through these pages shall we 
recall a once-dear friend or a thrilling moment now long forgotten? Perhaps 
we shall often smile, remembering the famous quotation, "Youth is such a 
precious thing that it is a pity to waste it on the young." May we, in that 
future time, as we replace this book on the shelf once more to gather dust, 
enjoy the realization that youth was not wasted on us. 

But enough of reverie! The past is pushing us forward. Don't 
hesitate; step over the threshold. The future awaits. Let us enter it !

Roslindale, Massachusetts 



Zo the Class of 1954 



Today it is more than ever apparent that we must have a deep and 
abiding faith in our American way of life, in our democratic principles, especially 
as they are opposed to other political beliefs now so prevalent elsewhere. Demo- 
cracy dedicates itself to the cause of human liberty; democracy asserts the rights 
of human beings and protects those rights from the dictates of any despot or group 
of despots. The founders of our country based our government upon the clear 
recognition of human rights: the right to love and worship God each in one's own 
way; the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and the right to improve 
oneself intellectually and economically. In other words, our founding fathers 
recognized the rights of the individual as the handiwork of God, and the dignity of 
that individual. 

American schools exist to instill these principles in their students. 
Roslindale High School, therefore, has given you a thorough grounding in the 
ideals of democracy. It has trained you according to the principles of your fore- 
fathers, the founders of our great land. 

A country like ours, where the individual is faced by so many differences 
in belief, ideology, class, and sectional pride, presents to you a challenge. You 
must meet that challenge by dedicating your lives to the task of proving to an un- 
believing world that democracy is a real, live, breathing form of government, de- 
voted to the imperishable truths that all authority is from God, that He has 
placed it in the hands of a people meant to be free, and that these people bestow 
upon their elected officials the right to make laws, according to that authority. 

Are you now disturbed by the present condition of the world? Do you 
look with misgivings upon your future, filled, so you think, with so many threats 
to a quiet, purposeful, happy life? If you do, may I quote to you a little thought 
which I found in my reading lately: 

"I happen to have a great deal of confidence in the Architect Who built 
this world in the first place, and until it has finally fulfilled the destiny which He 
intended for it, I do not believe that we mortals will ever succeed in destroying 
His handiwork." 

What an inspiring and comforting thought this should be to each of 
you! It should help you to go forth with faith in your God and in your own abili- 
ties, with hope in your God and in your own potentialities, and with love for your 
God and for your fellow-man. 

Now you have achieved one important goal in your lives, a high school 
diploma. Since you have achieved one, you must know that you have the power 
to achieve others. Go, therefore, with faith in yourselves, with hope in your aspira- 
tions, with determination and purpose in all you do. Above all, go with God.

THESE ARE the MOST 



SENIOR COUNCIL 

It is an honor to be elected a member of the 
Senior Council, but the honor carries with it a 
good deal of work. INot the least of the tasks in- 
volved is that of rising early enough to get to the 
earlybird meetings in Room 17. Furthermore, 
collectors for the Bureau of Internal Revenue 
don't make themselves any more unpopular than 
members of the Senior Council when they battle 
to collect class dues and ) ear Hook subscriptions. 
They found time also to arrange and manage our 
very successful Senior Prom, our Class Day ac- 
tivities, and our Graduation. To all the faithful 
councillors and alternates, to our officers, and to 
our faculty sponsors, Miss Dorothea Kelley and 
Miss Rosemary Reilly, we, the members of the 
Class of 1954, are grateful for a job well done. 



KEY CLUB 



The Key Club has been functioning smoothly 
throughout the year, performing services to the 
school and community with a spirit of neighbor- 
liness and efficiency. The club meets Friday 
mornings to plan projects and discuss what part 
it must play in school affairs. This year Key 
Club members have assisted in the sale and distri- 
bution of savings stamps, have acted as solicitors 
for the Heart Fund collection, and have repre- 
sented Roslindale at the Massachusetts Confer- 
ence of Key Clubs and at an anti-juvenile delin- 
quency rally early in the year. On the lighter side, 
they sponsored a successful dance on the night of 
Washington's Birthday. Anthony McAlear is the 
club president, with Leonard Kelly vice-presi- 
dent, George May secretary, and Freeman Shep- 
herd treasurer. William Quinn and Herbert 
Sakrison are members of the class board. 



THE ROSLYN CHAPTER 
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY 

The Boslyn Chapter was organized in Bos- 
lindale High School in 1947. Its purpose is that 
of the National Honor Society: to encourage and 
to recognize high standards of scholarship, serv- 
ice, leadership, and character. Students meeting 
these requirements are elected each year by a 
Faculty Council from the senior and junior classes. 
The Chapter holds monthly meetings, gives a re- 
ception to the new members and a farewell tea to 
the seniors, conducts fund-raising activities in 
order to contribute to charities and to provide a 
$100 scholarship yearly for one of its members. 
It serves the school in various capacities: pro- 
viding a calendar secretary, ushering at school 
functions, conducting the Honor Boll Assemblies 
for each class, and sponsoring the Boslyn Play.

At Cargc 



Looking back a little, we see that our 
Spanish Club was last but certainly, not least to 
re-organize this year. !Ay! qiae las lima! At the 
first December meeting Sylvia Edwards was 
elected president; Priscilla Harling, Vice-Presi- 
dent; Roseanne Mandigo, secretary; and Rose- 
mary Cusick, treasurer. 

Most of our entertainment was improvised 
by our members. We always enjoyed it, never- 
the-less, especially the skit presented by our ver- 
satile Joan Casey and our able Veep Priscilla EL CLUB ESPANOL 
Harling in the second "session". Perhaps the 
highlight of our club year was the February meet- 
ing when Miss Helen Attridge, a teacher at the 
Patrick Gavin School and a Spanish enthusiast, 
spoke and showed colorful slides on her travel 
throughout Spain. A skit was presented that 
afternoon by William Ouinn, Carol Doyle, and 
Sylvia Edwards. We are, indeed, proud of our 
successful year and can only say " Viva El Club 
Espanol en la Escuela Superior de Roslindale!" 



IL CIRCOLO ITALIANO 



Members claim that // Circolo Ilaliano is one 
of the most enjoyable clubs in the school. At our 
meetings we have beautiful Italian music (than 
which there is none more beautiful), games in 
Italian, and an abundance of refreshments, 
especially Italian delicacies, made by members. 
It is amazing the number of people who suddenly 
discover a claim to membership on the days of 
our meetings! Much of the credit for the success 
of our club must go to our faculty adviser, Miss 
Mary Stavrinos. Officers for 1953-1954 are 
Regina Nocca, President; Grace DiRello, Secre- 
tary; and Richard Tellier, Treasurer. The most 
efficient program committee is composed of Rona 
Avallone, Chairman, Elvira Arcaro, and Adelaide 
Lessa. 



Once a month the strains of the Marseillaise 
are heard in room 225 as the French Club meeting 
begins. 

All the club converse en Franqais and in 
order to encourage this practice a penny fine has 
been set for any person found speaking any other 
language at these meetings. 

The afternoon passes quickly for there is en- 
tertainment supplied by the talented members of 
the club, French games are played, and French 
songs are sung, and a very essential part of the 
festivities La Collation. 

The officers who were elected at the first 
meeting this year are La Presidenle Jo-Anne 
O'Leary, La Vice-Presidenle Mary McQueeney, 
La Secretaire Marjorie Harrington and La 
Tresoriere Lorraine Clodi. 

Our wholehearted thanks goes to Miss Kane 
who sponsored the club. It is agreed that with- 
out her untiring aid and encouragement the club 
would never have been a success.

GLEE CLUB 

It is the boast of Mr. Michael A. Famiglietti, 
our director, that his nightingales are by all odds 
the brightest and the prettiest girls in t he school 
. . . what's more, they can sing. As usual, our 
Christmas and Graduation programs were graced 
by the melody and harmony of the Glee Club. 
Our annual appearance at the Children's Medical 
Center, to entertain t he lit tie patients with Christ- 
mas carols, is a tradition that we all love. We 
have all enjoyed the public appearances of the 
club, for performing as part of a well-trained and 
effective musical group is truly a rewarding ex- 
perience. We have enjoyed the intensive work of 
rehearsal, also, and we have all learned a great 
deal from our membership in the Glee Club. Our 
officers this year were Shirley Lebovitz, Presi- 
dent; Janet Oxenharn, Vice-president; and Do- 
lores Di.\apoli, Secretary. 

ORCHESTRA 

The orchestra, with Mr. Howard K. Garniss 
of the Department of Music as director and Miss 
Mary Reid as faculty adviser, had a good year. 
They have made their usual appearances at 
school assemblies, at Christmas, at Class Day, 
and we expect them at Graduation. This year's 
group displays great versatility, with a notably 
strong woodwind section. Lately they have been 
busy rehearsing a brand new graduation march. 

Fun and enjoyment are the watchwords 
when the orchestra members are playing together. 
They thoroughly enjoy themselves both while re- 
hearsing and when appearing in public. The de- 
light to be found in creating music instead of just 
listening to it is an important feature of belonging 
to an orchestra. It is sad that, in many schools, 
this excellent feature of school life has been aban- 
doned because of lack of trained musicians. May 
we never come to that pass! 

BA\D 

Hoslindale High School students have be- 
well accustomed to "noisy Tuesday." To the un- 
accustomed it should be explained that the din 
can be attributed to the band rehearsal. Various 
unoccupied class rooms are used by the woodwind, 
brass, and drum sections for their lessons and 
practice, and anyone who happens to go through 
the corridors during lunch time can have his ears 
assaulted by blaring brass and thumping drums. 
Marching practice is held on Friday mornings in 
the gym. Formal appearances of the band are 
few, unfortunately, but members have high hopes 
that on the big day — school-boy parade day — 
they can bring a prize home to the school. The 
director is Mr. Arlie Latham, of the Department 
of Music, and Mr. Carl F. Gabele is faculty ad- 
viser.

CEREBRAL FALSE Y CLUB 



Our Cerebral Palsey workers have been plying 
their trade of helping others for two years and are 
hoping for another successful year. They have 
brought fame to Roslindale High through their 
diligent efforts which entitled them to top rating 
in the Boston area. We thank them heartily and 
leave our hopes for continued success. 



ART CLUB 

A new addition to Roslindale High School 
this year is the Art Club, under the direction of 
Mr. Midman. It is composed of students who 
take art in school or who enjoy it as a hobby. All 
that is required for membership is a real interest in 
art. The group meets three times a month and 
often invites a speaker to tell us of new trends in 
art or to demonstrate new theories and materials 
in action. Tours to the Museum of Fine Arts and 
to various art studios help to make the club one 
of the most active and stimulating in the school. 
Joanne Power is president of the organization, 
Robert Woolfrey is vice-president, and Dorothy 
O'Toole is treasurer. 



DEBATING CLUB 

The Debating Club continued this year, as in 
the past, to provide an opportunity for much fun 
and profit to those interested in settling the prob- 
lems of the world. Perhaps some of the solutions 
that were offered might not have been entirely 
adequate and up to the standard of a Congres- 
sional investigating committee, but the members 
of the club at least enjoyed themselves in the 
process of presenting them. Vehement argumen- 
tation was always the order of the day, but when 
the forums were over friends were still speaking 
to each other. This was true even when Senator 
McCarthy came up for consideration. 




BUGLE AND DRUM CORPS 

The Bugle and Drum Corps has one dis- 
tinction; it is undoubtedly the smallest organized 
activit y in the school. It makes up in spirit w hat 
it lacks in size, however, and the members toot 
their bugles and roll their drums in true profes- 
sional style. Last year it was necessary to consol- 
idate the Band and the Corps for the annual 
parade, but this year it is to be hoped that the 
buglers and drummers can parade as a unit and 
perhaps bring home a flag. 



JUNIOR RED CROSS 

As always the Junior Bed Cross of Boslin- 
dale High School worked continually throughout 
the year to bring happiness to others. Our stu- 
dents filled seventy Christmas gift boxes for less 
fortunate boys and girls overseas. Our girls also 
elegantly dressed three hundred and fifty dolls 
which were distributed in orphanages and other 
charitable institutions. Besides these annual 
projects, our Bed Cross prepared an album depict- 
ing the many famous and historical sites in Bos- 
ton, which was sent to school children in Greece 
in return for an exquisite album on the history 
and culture of Greece.

FOOTBALL 

Roslindale's football team, captained by 
Dick Conley, opened the year with roaring suc- 
cess by winning their first three games with Trade, 
Charlestown and Jamaica Plain. Because of 
heavy injuries to our key players our next three 
games with South Boston, East Boston and 
Hyde Park were lost, but we ended the 1953 
season with a win over Brighton. Dick was 
backed b> Pete Sullivan, Tony Sabbag, John 
Adams, Jay McWeeney, Hugh Crossen, Richard 
Donohue, Henry Guenthner, Michael Bidini, 
James Larkin, Joe O'Neill, Martin Hegarty, John 
Ainsworth, Bob Conrad, Hugh Hynes and Torn 
McQueeney. 




BASKETBALL 

The basketball team this year was off' to a 
flying start, and although our high hopes were 
diminished slightly as the season wore on, the 
record was one to be proud of. At one time we 
were sure that B.H.S. would capture the District 
Championship, but that, like the American 
League pennant, will have to "wait till next 
year." The team will lose relatively few members 
through graduation, and the juniors of this year's 
Varsity, plus the fine Jayvee's coming along, will 
iiive us a winner in '55.

HOCKEY 

The Roslindale High School hockey team lias 
had more than its share of bad luck in the past 
two years. The season of 1952-1953 is better left 
unmentioned. This year, with the jinx still in 
operation, the team lost four, tied two, and won 
one during the season. Rossie played good 
hockey in all its games, but a bad third period 
haunted the team. Going into the final period 
against both Jamaica Plain and Commerce, 
Rossie led by two goals, only to have both schools 
come back to tie the score. Rob Runci and George 
Rarry contributed the high scores, but the team 
as a whole deserves great credit for good team 
play. 

TRACK 

The 1953-1954 track team was spear-headed 
by Arnold Clark, District, Reggie, and State high 
jump champion. Although the team com 
against schools which outnumbered it th 
one, it placed second twice and third twice 
four district meets. The team's greatest 
weakness was lack of numbers, especially in 
C. Let's hope that next year there will be 
large numbers out for track; we can rea

Qame 



BASEBALL 

Early in March, after a fine season of fall- 
and winter-time sports, the Roslindale boys re- 
ported to Coach Murray for a discussion of 1951 
baseball strategy. The nucleus of last year's team, 
consisting of Dick Conley, Rob Cogliano, Rob 
Allen, Joe O'Neill, Ed Hogan, Joe Dolley, Nick 
Donovan, and Dick Cranshaw, will be augmented 
by some fine sophomore and junior prospects. 
As we go to press, we see a fine pitching staff, 
some potent hitters, and a great defensive squad. 
R.H.S. is sure to give rival schools some fine com- 
petition, and we predict a great season for the 
crimson and sold. 



Qirls' Sports 



Not only have the girl athletes in our class 
participated in many sports; they have excelled in 
them, too. In our sophomore year they practiced 
the fundamentals shown to them in a badminton 
exhibition and soon mastered the fine art of bat- 
tling birdies over a net-. The district champion- 
ship in basketball was their trophy in our junior 
year. On cool autumn afternoons field hockey 
just came natural to them; everyone likes to 
bully! When the weather became severe, volley- 
ball was substituted, or to be more precise, ro- 
tated. Bowling was one of our strong points. 



There were always high scorers who proudly 
enumerated their strikes and spares, and a few, 
we must admit, who enumerated the balls that 
strayed into the gutter by mistake. In the spring 
our young girls' fancies turned to . . . tennis and 
softball. Golf became popular, and even though 
our athletes weren't like Babe Zaharias, they 
will make very good caddies. The swimmers 
soon learned to float without their water wings, 
and took pride in their fancy dives and strokes. 
Our girl athletes deserve an E for excellence and 
a V for participation in girls' sports.

A TREE GROWS IN ROSLINDALE 



The tender young seedlings arc planted in the nursery. As they begin to sproul 
and develop, they are transplanted into small pots; then, as thej grovi to look like trees, 
they are set out, transplanted again to get their real growth before the} are sen! oul into 
the world. So did we begin in the kindergarten, so were we transplanted into the primary 
school and t he junior high school, and so at last did we conic lo Roslindale High Sc hool for 
the real task of growing up. Our limbs, reaching outward and upward, were unsteady, our 
roots were seeking firmer ground. 

Life in our new environment was not all easy at first. All the classrooms and all 
the corridors looked alike. Someone kept moving the gym down where the auditorium had 
been, and vice versa. Sometimes they took away our home-rooms completely before we 
could get back to them at two-thirty. Perhaps it wouldn't have been so confusing if there 
had been a tiny information window on each floor, just for those between-period rushes. 
Somehow, who knows how, we usually managed to survive until lunch-time. 

The young growing plant is frequently attacked by insects and pests. Oh, those 
sophisticated seniors! One introduction to the thronged lunch counter and v\e, terrified, 
decided to bring our own lunches. Our pickle-and-peanut-butter sandwiches were scorned 
by our elders. One would think our innocent little sandwiches were lettuce worms crawling 
on mud. And our waxed-paper was sneered at as old-fashioned. After all, tin foil w as now 
a la mode! Gradually, though, we adapted ourselves to the school. The seniors came to 
appear less sophisticated and sneering and became instead our ideals. Some of our class- 
rooms acquired a home-like look. People even smiled in recognition in the corridors. Some 
of us joined clubs. School spirit swelled in the hearts of those sophomores who, chosen by 
the Glee Club, sang at graduation. The boys who played on the Jayvee teams began to feel 
that they belonged. Thus the small tree added a circle to its trunk and a year of learning 
and experience to its expanding life. 

September of 'fifty-two welcomed the new junior sapling with several changes 
in the faculty. Miss Scannell had retired; Miss Croke had been transferred to Girls' High 
School; and Miss Ruane had been transferred to Girls' Latin School. We were all grieved 
at the loss of Miss Aznive, who had died the previous spring. We felt that we had lost a 
great teacher and a great personality. 

Ambition grew in our ranks. In the autobiographical division of a contest spon- 
sored by National Scholastic Magazines, Wilma Cerruti won first prize for her story, "Par- 
tigiani." Marilyn Wagner placed high in the Carruthers Contest for prose reading. Our 
young leaders were encouraged in the various clubs. The French Club amazed us by elect- 
ing a junior as president, our own Glenda Farrell. The Debating Club sent four of our 
number, Sylvia Edwards, Priscilla Hading, Donald Malaguti, and Jo-Anne O'Leary, to an 
open forum held in the Boston Public Library. A great honor came to those twenty-five 
juniors who were inducted into the Roslyn Chapter of the National Honor Society: Bar- 
bara Anderson, Nancy Black, Joan Casey, W ilma Cerruti, Lorraine Clodi, Arlene Cronin, 
Anne Dervan, Dolores DiNapoli, Glenda Farrell, Elaine Fellows, Barbara Finley, Shirley 
Lebovitz, Donald Malaguti, Jacqueline Malouf, Alice Mannino, Virginia Maraggia, Pa- 
tricia Maguire, Dorothy O'Toole, Janet Oxenham, Irene Piazzano, Dorothy Prendergast, 
Marilyn Wagner, Elizabeth Weitz, Jane W bitten, and Carol Doyle. 

In March Kenneth Pauley, our naturalist, startled us by bringing us somen hat 
unusual guests, his pet reptiles, for a science exhibition. The Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology displayed his collection and also Tony McAlear's mushroom collection. 

Came the latter part of Mary, and the excitement of elections was upon us. 
June saw gay posters advertising the talents and virtues of the many candidates. All kinds 
of gadgets decorated the lapels, the pony-tails, or any other place suitable for displaying 
campaign advertising. Booming voices and clever slogans urged our votes. At last voting 
day and the end of suspense arrived. When the final count was taken, Bob Cogliano was 



class president, Carol Doyle was vice-president, Dolores Lee secretary, and June Hogan 
started Case Number One, on the still hunt for class dues. Dum du dum dum! 

The end of another year and another circle of life had come to the maturing 
tree. It had begun to develop a definite color, and its sprouts were developing into twigs 
and branches. By the time September of 'fifty-three had rolled around, the tree was 
definitely out of the nursery stage and ready to begin its last year of sheltered growth before 
being moved out into the great world. 

That fall we welcomed four new members to our faculty: Mr. Conroy, Mr. 
Midman, Mrs. Rowell, and Miss White. We also were glad to have back with us Lieutenant 
Famulari after his year of absence spent in study at Boston University. 

The familiar lunchroom presented our first problem, as usual. It seems that the 
milk company had changed the opening on the milk cartons. That was fine, but they forgot 
to leave us the combination. We learned, — after a few spatterings. 

Football season was in full swing again, and our lively cheer-leaders exercised 
their lungs mightily at the games; Dolores Lee, Martha Barnard, June Hogan, Mary 
McQueeney, and Regina Nocca. Next came the appointments of the Senior Council, whose 
members started their duties off with a bang by hounding us every Friday morning for our 
dues. That was only the beginning of the constant drain. By November we, all smiles 
and dimples, were rushing to pose before Mr. Sargent's cameras. That operation didn't 
exactly break us, but it left us badly bent. 

Activities were well under way, with the Tattler as always producing a school 
publication we could be proud of. Wilma Cerruti was editor-in-chief, and she and her 
staff upheld the high standards of our magazine. Janet Oxenham was elected editor-in-chief 
of the Year Book, with Richard Driscoll, Glenda Farrell, and Brian Turley as associate 
editors. Rarbara Finley and her competent staff kept us before the public eye in the fa- 
miliar and popular Roslindale High School Notes, published weekly in the Parkway Tran- 
script. 

Lorraine Clodi, Shirley Lebovitz, and Virginia Maraggia were elected officers 
of the Honor Society. The following Seniors were elected to the Roslyn Chapter, N. H. S., 
in 1954: Marilyn Ritz, Lois Cassidy, Richard Driscoll, Irene Edenborg, Priscilla Hailing, 
Roseanne Mandigo, Jeanne McClellan, Jo-ann O'Leary, Katherine Power, and Pauline 
Soucaras. 

At Christmas time we opened our hearts and donated gifts to the Children's 
Medical Center. The Glee Club delivered the gifts and entertained the ehildern with carols. 
As usual, Miss Gordon directed t his fine project. Our Christmas Assembly was one of the 
nicest we have ever had. The announcements were made by William Quinn, Marilyn 
Wagner read the beautiful St. Luke Christmas story, and many of our talented musicians 
performed in the numbers by the Glee Club, the Orchestra, and the language classes. An 
unusual and very effective feature was the singing of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" by 
an able chorus of boys, accompanied by a piano and woodwind group in an original arrange- 
ment. 

After Christmas the year began to whiz by all too fast. The menace of College 
Roards threatened. The problem of getting a full-time job faced us. Then came the pros- 
pect of the Prom, and finally the realization, with "the lovliest night of the year" at Long- 
wood Towers. Refore we knew it, we faced the actual end of the year, the end of our high 
school days. Class Day has come, and on this great day we have, of our stay here at Ros- 
lindale High School, only Graduation to look forward to. 

They have been happy years, and we are grateful for them. We are grateful 
to our teachers, to our sponsors, and to our Head Master, Mr. Gately, for the help and 
guidance they have given us. 

The tree is in full leaf now. It is grown and ready to be transplanted into the 
great world outside the shelter of school. May the years that lie ahead be as successful and 
as happy as those just passed. 

Priscilla Hailing 
Helene Nay 



Class Will

Class Prophecy 



Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Roving Reporter, coming to you with an on-the- 
spot telecast of one of the top social events of the year 1964. Tonight marks the opening 
of the long-awaited, fabulous Golden Toothpick Club, the most modern, the most beauti- 
ful, the most glamorous gathering-place of society in this modern world. BBCK-TV is here 
to bring you in all its splendor this glittering social occasion. 

There at the door, welcoming his distinguished guests, is the manager, ARNOLD 
CLARK. You can see flash-bulbs exploding in all directions as photographer DICK SAW- 
YER snaps the celebrities arriving in the jet-propelled taxi cabs of TOM MUHPHY'S 
famous fleet. DICK CASS and JAY McWEENEY, Tom's ace drivers, are delivering pas- 
sengers at the door at the rate of three cab-loads a minute, because of the tremendous speed 
and efficiency of these ultra-modern hackney cabs. 

Early arrivals on the brilliant scene are PHISCILLA HABLING, JOHN McCOR- 
MICK, MARILYN BITZ, JAMES DONNELLY, MARCELLA O'CONNOR, and CARL 
WURZEL. Doorman BILL McKENDRY ushers them with a flourish through the super- 
sonic swinging doors. Inside, the girls leave their mink wraps with DOTTY KELLEY and 
BOBBY MAGBATH. Then the charming hostesses, JEAN CBOKE and CAROL ER- 
SKINE escort them to their seats. Already seated at tables are early arrivals DOTTY 
O'TOOLE, ELAINE FELLOWS, JACKIE MALOUF, and DOTTY PRENDERGAST, 
who have just finished their movie, "Four Sisters in Pink," produced by the PATBABLOW 
studio and directed by ANITA VASQUEZ and MABILYN VISCONTI. Now all heads 
turn toward the door as MARY HOYT and PETER YOGEL waltz to their reserved seats. 
BARBABA FINLEY and TISH TUBLEY rush up to interview them; both are trying to 
get exclusive interviews for their rival columns, which appear respectively in the KIMBALL 
Journal, edited by ELIZABETH HALLISSEY, and the POLITO Star edited by NANCY 
O'ROURKE. 

The orchestra (which, by the way, doesn't play anything so old-fashioned as 
cool music; this music is frozen stiff!) includes such talented musicians as BARBABA 
GOODE, BOB WOOLFBEY, LOIS CASSIDY, IBENE PIZZANO, BOB NANNEBY, 
NANCY BENEDETTI, with CONNIE MOBBIS at the piano. VIC BONACETO is con- 
ducting. They strike up a fast beat as LEE FULLEB, WALLY SMITH, PAT CALLI- 
GAN, and ED W EST get up to do the new"Mombo-Pombo" dance, created by the famous 
choreographer JANET STAFFIEB, for which ANN ZABELLA composed the music. By 
the time the dance is through, you see that the place is crowded to the doors. The applause 
dies out, the lights dim, and into the spotlight walks the M.C. BILL QUINN, ready to in- 
l rod uce t he first act. 

MARY LaROSA, singing rage of the day, opens the show with the brand-new 
sensation, "Throw me a Rose," written by JO-ANNE O'LEABY. Mary's accompanist is 
NANCY WHITE. Next on stage appears JANE WHITTEN, world-famous ballerina, with 
BAH BAB A CHASE, PEGGY COLBERT, PAT McGUIRE, and BETTY THIBEAU as 
members of the corps de ballet. Following this act comes the sensational magician BOB 
DiCABLO, who, with the graceful assistance of JOAN SULLIVAN and MABY MOCCIA, 
performs his extraordinary feats of prestidigitation: sawing JEANNE FLYNN in halves, 
pulling ALICE McEACHEBN out of a hat, and causing PAULINE HADDAD to disap- 
pear into thin air. As a grand finale, he hypnotizes JANICE QUINLAN, JEAN BAY- 
MOND, MIDGE GOBMLEY, and JEAN KENNEY. Under hypnosis, they are convinced 
by t he great magician that they are history teachers and start giving out paper for a bi- 
monthly. Fortunately, DiCABLO is able to bring them out of their hypnotic state in time 
to save the terrified audience. 

Now comes the intermission and a novel twist to the entertainment on this 
most unusual of opening nights. FBED ENGDAHL, the Angel of the enterprise, tells the 



audience the history of the making of this magnificent club. The construction of the build- 
ing was done by the JOHN AINSWORTH Construction Company, with MICHAEL 
ANDREWS as foreman and ROR MacDONALD, STAN MILTON, and ROR RLAGDON 
as assistants. The entire building, designed by LARRY DERANEY and ALLEN CAMP- 
RELL, architects, is constructed of glass blocks; the modern solar heating system was de- 
vised by ROR KENEFICK, DICK GAFFEY, and DICK TIERNEY. MARY LAHAM 
and LOUIS YITIELLO, interior decorators with a flair, did the decor. 

Intermission over, a burst of applause draws our attention to PAT PETERS, 
famous torch singer, who has just arrived in her new space ship, piloted bv DON Mac- 
DONALD. Her dress, created in Jupiter by HARRIET FRANTZEN, is trimmed with 
genuine, tiny moonbeams. RORRY MALONEY, outstanding photographer from Outer 
Space, rushes over to take her picture. Over in the corner, DAVE RERRY is giving away 
samples of his invention, The Golden Toothpick (which gave the club its name), and 
ARLENE CRONIN and LUCY PAGLIARULO are among the recipients. Mingling with 
the crowd are cigarette girls JOAN ROSS, PEGGY MURPHY, JOAN McCAFFREY, and 
HELEN MEADE. 

Now we return to the stage as guest star MARIE CARUSO continues the show 
with her aria " Riches to Rags." As she gives out with a piercing E above High C, PHYLLIS 
CORLEY is frightened into dropping a tray of hors d'oeuvres. ANGELO RALRONT, chef 
par excellence, rushes from the kitchen, tearing his hair out and screaming in Italian, to see 
what has happened to his masterpieces. After this slight interruption, the show resumes 
with SHEILA MURPHY'S pet seal rendering "Mother Machree" on the French horn. For 
this task well done, JANE MURDOCK throws Flippo the Seal a fat, juicy fish as he flaps 
gracefully off stage. 

Our talented acrobats JOAN MALOUF, SANDRA SHAW, ELAINE D'EN- 
TREMONT, and CLAIRE FOLEY, now come somersaulting onto the stage. Aiding with 
their equipment are PAUL GOOKIN and MICHAEL COPPOLA. As a climax RETTY 
HUGHES does a cartwheel over the footlights into the audience. Kerplunk! Minor 
sensation! 

The M. C. now directs the spotlight to some of the celebrities seated in the audience. 
SHIRLEY SHERMAN is dressed in a lavish creation by REGINA NOCCA, owner of the 
famous Diamond Dress Salon. Seated with Shirley are JEANNE McCLELLAN, ANNE 
MEEHAN, MARY GIRRONS, and NANCY KELLEHER, just back from Paris, where 
they have been learning of the dernier cri in fashion from SHIRLEY LEROVITZ, designer 
and fashion dictator of the style capitol of the world. ELAINE COMPERCHIO, owner of 
the leading salon de coiffure in Paris, gave them the news of her sensational new hair style, 
the Shaggy Dog, which is rapidly making obsolete such old-fashioned hairdos as the Poodle, 
the Horsetail, and the Italian. DIANA DRISCOLL and DONNA STEW ART, waiting 
for their escorts to return, are sipping Planetary Pop which, as you know, has now re- 
placed Coca-Cola as the national drink. 

The spotlight now falls on REV LOFGREN and MARGIE RECKE, who are sing- 
ing "She's Only a Rird in a Gilded Cage," the song they recently made famous. Their 
dresses were designed by CAROLYN WYAND and NORMA SARA, who have just set up 
shop on the Rue de la Paix. Now at last it is time for dinner. GERRY LAMACCHIA, 
CAROLYN DELANEY, PAT SCHOFIELD, and NORMA PESCATORE bring in the 
appetizers, consisting of Melon Rail and Pineapple Mintcup, concocted by LINDA KLIP- 
HAN and REV MOORE. Next on the menu are anchovy puffs and pastry snails prepared 
by CAROLYN MORRIS. Head waiters GEORGE GONSER, JOHN SLAYTER, and 
JOE DELLA CAMERA supervise the serving of sea food in green pepper rings and pheas- 
ant under glass perfected by HELENE SCHILD KRAUT and FRED NELLIGAN. The 
chef d'oeurre is the dessert, Pompadour Pudding, devised by MARIE \ RATTOS and LOIS 
SI LLIVAN and served with a flourish by RARRARA SMITH and JANICE WINSLOW. 
Afterwards after-dinner mints are served by ANNETTE AUCLAIR and RARRARA 
CHURCH. We give a prominent credit to PAUL ZAKUR, meal-planning engineer, who 
dreamed up this noble meal. Doesn't it make you hungry, folks!* Don't you just wish you 
were here, instead of being at home, eating beans and brown-bread? 



Alter dinner, our M.C. returns to introduce a thrilling rollerskating acl b\ JOSE- 
PHINE PETITTO, MARGARET CA I N, YVONNE COSSETTE and SHIRLEY 
SHRUHAN. The lights again fade, and their fluorescenl costumes, designed b> FLAVIA 
GALINETTI, make a beautiful whirling pattern. Their roller-skates are the latesl and 
speediest of the 1 1 A \ k GUENTHNEB Rapid Rollerskates Company. The nexl acl is a 
tap dance specially by KATHY POWERS and CAROL RIDDOCH, famous T\ stars. 
The taps on their shoes are sterling silver, hand made by BILL CATON. To round off the 
evening's entertainment comes BOB SEBETES' Interplanetary Dixie-land Band, with 
JIM AUTO beating the drums, JOHN NORTON clanging the cymbals, FBANNIE 
PIERCE pounding away on the piano, and BILL PEP] tooting the trumpet. As an encore, 
thev play "Woogie Boogie," an old-time song revived by MARILYN SI LLI\ \N and 
danced b\ those four experts, JINK BERG DOLL, MARIANNE TALAMAN, CAROLE 
SWEET and HELEN E BLEILEB. 

Now we go over to a corner table to say hello to servicemen ED COLBERT, BILL 
SWEENEY, JOHN DONOVAN, and DANNY HOGAN, who are sitting with JULIA 
HILL, JEAN BIANCHETTO, CONNIE DON A RE MA, and PAT COPELL, the four 
latter now being W AN ES on the fabulous new battleship designed by JOHN MacOLIL- 
KEN. Next are PAT SULLIVAN and MARY BRADLEY, co-authors of the new high 
school text book, "Which is Worse, Muzzey or Magruder?" \\ e part from the audience by 
saying good-bye to LENNY Till LANDER and ROB McCOLU M, heads respectively 
of the California and Florida Chambers of Commerce. 

It is time now to say good night to you, our television audience, and to all those who 
have made this glorious opening so successful. As the spotlight sinks in the west, and the 
scrubwomen rise in the east, we say good-bye to beautiful Club Golden Toothpick, and to 
BOB SULLIVAN and LOIS ANDERSON, who are just leaving after a third helping of 
dessert. BARBARA McCAl LE^I . chief housekeeper, comes out to supervise the cleamng- 
up. MARY CONNOLLY, EVELYN MOUSSALLI, and MARY COPPINGER, publicity 
managers, give their last-minute interviews to reporters for tomorrow's papers, which will 
undoubtedly acclaim tonight's opening as the hit of the 1964 season. PAT COOKE, house 
detective, stumbles over a 15-carat diamond, last seen on SHIRLEY ELWORTHY'S 
finger. Her assistants DON MAHONEY and DAVE MARTUS leave to return the dia- 
mond to Miss Elworthy's secretary, JANET McCARTER. 

Back at the club GERALDINE ADAMS, MARY BRUNO, and HELENE WALSH, 
expert pearl-divers, are noiselessly stacking dishes in the dishwasher, looking busily all the 
while for pearls, while ROSE RALBONI, master switch-switcher, waits to switch the 
switch. CATHERINE DOHERTY and TESSY DOLAN are testing the upholstery for 
stray dimes and quarters, and PRISCILLA STEPHENS, RITA McTOMNEY, and PAT 
ARCARO, make-up artists, wonder idly what happened to the beauty spot w hich was sup- 
posed to have been worn by DOROTHY EIFERT in the last number. 

At last, after SUSY COPPOLA and IRENE WTGHTMAN have finished emptying 
the ashtrays and BILL MOLLOY has finished waxing the dance floor, the night watchman, 
TEDDY LANGMEYER, settles down in a comfortable chair to watch for mice. 

Outside BETTY W EITZ, CATHERINE CUMMINGS, and PAULINE SOUCA- 
RAS, sound effect experts, are drowsily waiting for the atomic trolley to take them home to 
peace and quiet. It is time, too, for your roving reporter to seek his downy couch. So good- 
night, ladies and gentlemen, from the Golden Toothpick Club and the Class of Ninetcen- 
fifty-four.

THE TATTLER 

Under the fine supervision of Miss Toland, 
the Tattler had another successful year. The sub- 
scription representatives, under the direction of 
Miss Daly, conducted an effective drive for sub- 
scriptions; the first issue contained, of all things, 
a picture of a boys' home-room that had sub- 
scribed one hundred percent for the year. This 
may have indicated more wealth among boys, 
but, much more probably, showed greater interest 
in the Tattler. As usual, everyone enjoyed reading 
the Tattler, not only for its literary pieces, always 
of fine quality, but also for its complete and well- 
written record of school events. "Sunny Side Up" 
and the cartoon pages were among the most 
popular, depicting as they did the griefs, peeves, 
jokes, and experiences of typical students. The 
art work, done under Mr. Midman's direction, 
delighted everyone. 

The Tattler is a valuable school activity for 
many reasons; not the least of these is the fact 
that it allows a large number of students to par- 
ticipate in its publication. The editorial board 
accepts contributions from anyone, the business 
staff is large and open to all w ho want to work on 
it, and there are representatives in all home- 
rooms. The Year Book salutes the Tattler — Con- 
gratulations from one school publication to an- 
other I 




THE TRANSCRIPT 

Hard work, skillful news ferreting, and wri- 
ting ability are the ingredients which have gone 
into making the Roslindale High School Notes 
section in the Parkway Transcript the popular 
feature it is every Thursday. The "Boy or Girl 
of the W eek" column is enlightening, making the 
student body and the public acquainted with out- 
standing students and their activities. Transcript 
reporters have written also sports stories and 
feature articles on student activities both in and 
outside school. Chairman of the able staff is 
Barbara Finley, and the other members are Carol 
Doyle, Jacqueline Malouf, Helene Nay, Jo-Anne 
O'Leary, Donald Malaguti, and Brian Turley. 
Sports writers include Carl Wurzel, Thomas 
O'Donovan, and John Adams.

"Let's have a Year Book that's different!" 
. . . that was the password that would permit any 
loyal member of the ) ear Book staff to attend the 
ultra-secret 8:15 meetings held in Room 109. 
After selecting Janet Oxenham as editor-in-chief, 
and Glenda Farreli, Dick Driscoll, and Brian 
Turley as associate editors, we set about making 
the password come to life. Oh, we discovered to 
our mild surprise, what a lot there is to producing 
a year book! Pictures, pictures, pictures! Hard- 
to-find people! People nobody ever heard of! 
As it must to all men, the dead-line came upon us. 
\\ ith a final burst of efficiency, crazy candids were 



censored and cropped, missing writeups were 
found (\\ hal were people keeping them for?), and 
our faithful, unbelievably efficient secretaries 
typed yards of material. All the while the capable 
business staff, under the direction of Miss Daly, 
used expert salesmanship to collect the ads with- 
out which there would be no Year Book. 

Now, thanks to the understanding but firm 
guidance of Miss Reid, our wild ideas have been 
neatly cornered and bound into a brand new 
Year Book with a brand new cover. We wait with 
bated breath for your reaction . . . We hope our 
efforts have been successful!
